JOHN E MALBONE   (1865 - 1920)
Obituary: Adirondack Record, Friday, September 24, 1920
The recent death on Sept. 15th of John E. Malbone, a native of Wilmington, deserves more than passing mention.
Born in Wilmington- March 3, 1865, he removed with his family to Spokane, Wash. about 21 years ago, where he has since resided with the exception of the past three years, during which time he has lived in Honolulu. He had been visiting his brothers and sisters in this section for the past nine months, and returning with his brother Earnest and family had reached Omaha, Neb. and died there Sept. 15th of heart failure. The remains were brought back by the way of Lake Placid and were taken to the home of his oldest sister, Mrs. George Williams, where prayer was offered by Rev. Robert L. Clark.  The funeral services were held in The Methodist church at Wilmington, Burial being in the family plot in the Malbone Cemetery beside the bodies of his father and His mother.  The body of his son, who was buried at Lake Placid thirty years ago was disinterred and buried with him in the same Grave.
While a resident of Spokane, Mr. Malbone made a trip around the world, spending considerable time in India and Australia, also visiting the Holy Land. He was an interesting talker and was sure of an audience in describing his journey.  He seemed to be in good health when he came to this section of the county in November last.  On Christmas Day, 1919 forty of his relatives gathered at the old Homestead in Wilmington and a most delightful reunion was enjoyed by all present.  His kindly nature won the hearts of all, and his main object in life seemed to be to "strew flowers and Sunshine" in the pathway of his many relatives and friends.  In May his health seemed to fail, but he made a trip to New York with his sister, Mrs Charles Marshall, stopping on his way home to visit another sister, Mrs. Williams, in Lowell, Mass.  He also visited several other places of interest and returned to Wilmington apparently much improved in health.
The last gathering with his loved ones in this section was at the home of his sister, Mrs. James Rounds, at Newman.  His last remarks portrayed to some extent the character of this Christian man: "I am going away: be kind and loving to each other for the way of the cross leads home."  He was particularly fond of children and really seemed to enjoy their company above all others.  This feeling was reciprocated by the little ones and Mr. Malbone could be found in their company on many occasions.
He leaves a wife and five children in Washington. Also, seven sisters and three brothers as follows:  Mrs. E Williams, Mrs. George Williams, Mrs. James Rounds, Mrs H. Milhill, Mrs Orrin Fay, Mrs. Charles Marshall, Mrs. H Wilkins, Charles Malbone, Earnest Malbone and Martin Malbone.
